Exciting news: our Woodlands Park is on the cover of Ground magazine! (

The theme for Ground’s Winter 2022 issue is “Neighbours.” Project lead and local resident Sarah Sheehan wrote about Woodlands Park: Ghost Landscape, a community-led placemaking project, for the magazine’s Artifact page.

Woodlands Park: Ghost Landscape was a multimedia installation that focused on two 75th anniversaries in 2021 and 2022: that of the 1946 Stelco strike, and of the 1947 actions by the city’s Parks Board, which forever changed Woodlands Park.

This project was made possible by the City of Hamilton’s Placemaking Grant Pilot Program with support from the Patrick J. McNally Charitable Foundation, with additional financial support generously provided by the Ward 3 office and USW Local 1005.
